IT'S NAPOLEON Bonaparte. No, it's Kaiser Wilhelm. No, Benito Mussolini. Or is it Saddam Hussein? .....Who will the Antichrist character prove to be? .....The Book of Revelation, that feverish final vision of the New Testament, depicts his epic origins: Out of the sea will rise a beast with 10 horns and seven heads, diadems on its horns, "blasphemous names" on its heads.From this fearsome beast will emerge the Antichrist incarnate, archvillain of the apocalypse and a dark emblem of Christian millennial theology.

Unless there is another last-minute change, Pope John Paul II will soon make the first visit to Baltimore of any of the 265 or so reigning Bishops of Rome. He is scheduled to be in the United States in early October.In terms of expectations, this could be called his second coming. (He was here earlier as a Polish bishop.)One local observer has felt, though, that the hype attending this visit, especially in the archdiocesan newspaper, suggests that we are now having a dry run for the more famous Second Coming.

It is often said that being president of the United States is the most awesome and demanding job in the world.Sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office, the chief executive must absorb masses of information and make decisions that could influence the very survival of freedom and civilization.So imagine how President Clinton must have felt one day when he received an urgent fax from someone named Sara Rodriguez in Chicago, informing him that she had just been fired as an aide to Congressman Mel Reynolds and that Reynolds sometimes beat his wife.

In an inventive, if ultimately unsuccessful, legal maneuver, a Severn man charged with beating his elderly parents to death said a judge hearing his case is an instrument of the devil and should therefore step down.Mark Gregory Medley's claim that Judge Eugene M. Lerner is the Antichrist enlivened an otherwise routine pretrial hearing yesterday in county Circuit Court, where Medley's murder trial is scheduled to begin today.Medley's attorneys unsuccessfully argued that Lerner should remove himself from the case because he had presided over a civil trial to determine whether Medley should receive his inheritance from his slain parents.

As a new millennium nears, certain religious sects will probably become more insistent about the coming Apocalypse, about Judgment Day, about the Armageddon.Perhaps this is always the way with new millenniums.Unfortunately, it is impossible to know: Our precedent is limited to one. A millennium has only passed once since Christian calendars came into use.But how was that event perceived?Historians disagree whether the coming of the last millennium was seen as a big deal. Some believe that the year 1000 was greatly dreaded or greatly anticipated -- depending on whether one considered oneself on God's good side or not.Other historians insist that the new millennium was hardly noted.

Back in 2008 I put up a short post on the grammar of the Second Amendment , pointing out that the introductory absolute puts the right of bearing arms in the context of the establishment of a militia. It would have been interesting to expand on that in discussion, but, as you can see from the comments, the immediate response was vilification, under the assumption that I was one of those gutless liberals trying to take away all the guns.* All I was saying is that the amendment as the Founders composed it put the right in the context of the militia, and I think that that is indisputable to anyone who can comprehend straightforward English.

For years, Florida was known as a pretty wholesome place. Between Disney World, Cape Canaveral, the Daytona Speedway and Miami Beach, it seemed a great place to bring the family, a state where things rarely got rowdier than Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale.These days, though, there are some pretty dark doings in the Sunshine State. Not only has Tampa become the death metal capital of the world, but the state has also unleashed the likes of Mike Diana, whose grisly 'zine Boiled Angel made him the only cartoonist ever to be convicted of obscenity, and the Genitorturers, a band whose show includes bondage, S&M and onstage body piercing.

TORONTO -- A 3-month-old boy was stabbed to death in a Quebec village because he was considered the Antichrist in the rituals of a cult linked to the murder-suicide of 53 people in Switzerland and Quebec last month, the Quebec provincial police say.The police reconstructed the bizarre developments in a burned-out chalet in the ski resort village of Morin Heights, north of Montreal, where five people were found dead early last month.The incident was followed a few days later by the fiery deaths of 48 cult members in two Swiss villages.
